Comedy Bang! Bang! breaks the traditional late night talk show format by infusing celebrity appearances and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal. Scott engages his guests with unfiltered and improvisational lines of questioning, punctuated by banter and beats provided by Reggie to reinvent the traditional celebrity interview. Along with the series' character cameos, filmed shorts and surprise guest stars, this season will also feature special holiday-themed and musical episodes.

Comedy Bang! Bang! is produced for IFC by Abso Lutely Productions; Scott Aukerman and Dave Kneebone serve as executive producers.
